Helicopter New York City has been involved in the Bagels 4 the Hungry initiative since its inception over three years ago. Bagels 4 the Hungry was started as a community outreach by Carmen Canas in an effort to connect to the homeless, and often times, helpless residents of Midtown Manhattan.
Each week, 50 to 150 people are fed sandwiches, fruit and juice or other drinks. Many homeless and impoverished people have come to rely on the weekly interaction and sense of community the program supplies. Many people are served week after week.
